12 Feb 2015 Written evidence submitted by the BANT to the Health Select Committee of the House of Lords published 12 February, 2015.
Written evidence submitted by British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) to the Health Select Committee of the House of Lords following public consultation on the Healthy Eating Puzzle plates has been published today as part of the Select Committee’s current enquiry into the effects of physical exercise and diet on health.
Chair of BANT Miguel Toribio-Mateas said: “the costs of obesity and diet-related disease (cardiovascular disease, some cancers, osteoporosis, mental health), both social and financial, demand that those working in the nutrition profession are up-to-date and appropriately qualified. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirement, nutritional status, and genotype (i.e., “personalised nutrition”) can be used to prevent, mitigate or cure chronic disease.”
